MagicTip™ DNA/RNA purification kits are available for various sample types including muscle tissue, blood, hair follicles, cheek swabs, semen, tail clippings etc. We have tested several animal types including cattle, pigs, dogs, chicken, turkey, fish (zebra fish), mice (lab varieties), flies (drosophila), lice, nematodes, etc. We have also tried bacterial, viral and fungal samples and they all work well.
MagicTip™ Kits are also available for plant samples. MatMaCorp scientists have tested plant leaf material from Arabidopsis to Zea mays (corn) and all have yielded good quality DNA. DNA is stable for weeks in the lab and can be used for PCR, C-SAND® Assays or any other standard downstream applications. As with other technologies that we have developed, the MagicTip™ Kits do not require any specialized lab tools. The kit even comes with a disposable lab rack and all the buffers and tubes that are needed.
The MagicTip™ is a rod about 2 inches long resembling a tooth pick. It is a disposable device capable of binding DNA and RNA. Samples are initially lyzed in a buffer and the MagicTip® is swished around to bind DNA or RNA. After a quick wash, the clean DNA/RNA is eluted. From sample to clean DNA or RNA typically takes about 5 to 15 minutes depending on sample type. Compared to other rapid methods, the MagicTip™ yields cleaner DNA/RNA that is more stable. This should provide consistent and cleaner data for most applications in the lab or in the field.
